Combining state-of-the-art atmospheric modeling with the latest measurements-based findings, researchers at PNNL found that toxic particles can last longer and travel much farther than previous models predicted. The new insights indicate an estimate of global lung cancer risk from these pollutants four times higher than previously thought.
A recent paper co-authored by scientists from PNNL describes a novel analytical surveillance platform and its evaluation in large-cohort exposure assessment and metabolite screening.
Results of a study published online Feb. 13 in Nature Microbiology will help physicians and scientists understand inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) more fully and potentially offer new ways to track the disease and monitor patients.
Thanks to new chemical imaging results from a PNNL research team, researchers now have a better understanding of molecules linked to preterm births.
A new paper by PNNL researchers describes a process that captures methane from natural gas and biogas and that uses photosynthesis to convert it into biomass feedstock.
About The Division
Scientists within the Biological Sciences Division perform biological systems science research and develop technologies focused on how cells, cell communities, and organisms sense and respond to their environment. Our vision is to measure, predict, design, and control multi-cellular biological systems and bio-inspired solutions for energy, environment, and health.
Our investigator-initiated and multi-institutional collaborative research, unique scientific instrumentation, and national program leadership translate the latest scientific discoveries into technologies that are beneficial to the nation.
Our research has applications to energy, environment, and human health missions of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other federal agencies.
